Movember


UPDATE:  There's still time to donate!


During Movember (the month formerly known as November) I'm growing a Mo. That's right, I'm willing to look foolish (more so than usual) because I want to help in the fight against prostate cancer -- something that has deeply affected all of us with the loss of Frank.

If you are so inclined, you can help fund my public embarrassment by donating either:

   1. By visiting https://www.movember.com/uk/donate/donate-details.php?rego=1357076&country=uk, or
   2. Writing a cheque (though you'll need a UK account) payable to 'The Prostate Cancer Charity Re: Movember', referencing my Registration Number 1357076 and mailing it to:

                                               The Prostate Cancer Charity
                                               First Floor Cambridge House
                                               100 Cambridge Grove 
                                               Hammersmith
                                               London W6 OLE

The money raised by Movember is donated to The Prostate Cancer Charity which will help fight prostate cancer on every front - through research, support, information and campaigning.

Last Movember the Google UK Movember team managed to raise £6669 (~ $13,602).

Thanks for your mockery, jeers, jokes, ridicule and most importantly your love and support.

Ten Years

Ten years ago this week we went out on our first date - and then almost every night after that (unless we were living in different countries).  I was really excited to go out - but back then I guess it was a crush, and a feeling like it wouldn't end, which it didn't.  But now I have found out that I don't just have a fun guy that I have a crush on, but he is the best husband and father I could ever imagine.  I still get excited to go on a date with him, and I still love to see new places with him, he still makes me laugh, and feel best when I am with him - but now I also love to watch him with our kids, see them run to him with he gets home, and see him excited about work, politics, BBQs, days out, and everything else.  I couldn't have imagined then all the happiness and adventures we would share together.  Thanks for the last 10 years!  I love you!
